If you follow our Facebook page, you already know that we spent last week at the Outdoor Retailer show scouting out interesting new products for RVers. Talk about sensory overload! The show has thousands of booths set up, and to see it all, you’ll walk for miles. I put up tons of pictures of useful AND weird products, so if you ever want to find things like protein bars made out of crickets, just hit the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City. Except you probably can’t, because it isn’t open to the public! It’s a trade show for people in the industry and media (which is how we got in). We’re also very proud of the Winnebagans, because they actually brought the Travato and their 4×4 Era to the show. In a sea of products set up for active outdoorsy adventurous types, there was our beloved Travato. It just fit right in.
As RVers, we perpetually look for ways to enhance and improve our RV experiences. Much of that is finding the right products and gadgets to make our RVing experience easier. Here’s one of our cool finds at the 2015 Outdoor Retailer Show, the “Shoo Away,” a little twirling table-top contraption to keep flying bugs away. With this product, gone are the days you have to eat inside the RV due to pesky flies. Plus, Shoo Away‘s are just fun and cute. We sure could have used this during our last RV trip! We’ve got two of these puppies now, so our next trip we’ll be totally prepared. Here’s a short little video about it:
And just so we’re clear, we don’t get paid a dime, no one has hired us to push certain products, and we make no money if you go buy one yourself! We are just fellow RVers like you, who got to attend a cool trade show and genuinely wanted to share with you some of the neat products we personally liked. This handy little fly thwarter is definitely one of them. Next time you spot our bright yellow Travato at a campground, you can bet there’ll be one of these nifty gadgets on the table.
What do you think, gang? Is this cool? Would it be useful to you? Do you want to see James put it through some kind of insane test? Would love some feedback…
